Patience is not my virtue

Considering that the Publishing industry moves about as fast as honey in the Arctic, my lack of patience is not a very good thing.

However, my fellows, I have figured out a way to forestall my need for instant gratification:


I am publishing short stories while I write my novels!


I’m currently writing a new series that’s more Southern Women’s Fiction than anything else. Well, it’s snarky comedy, too, but, like I said: Southern Women’s fiction, thus the snarky comedic aspect is sort of already included. Book one’s main characters are named Greg Charmant and Rapunzel Harmand. No, seriously, that’s her name.


HIS STORY, a short story

You’ll get it when you read the



Don’t ask, the book will be done, soon, and then you can find out. :D


However, if you happen to be interested, I wrote Greg’s own short story, that starts in his childhood and ends just before the beginning of the trilogy. I’ll do the same for Rapunzel. The short story is available free at Smashwords, if you’re interested!

And, yes, he’ll get a Happily Ever After. I think he deserves it, don’t you?


Here’s the link to His Story, starring Greg Charmant!


Hope you enjoy!
